Qualia is 'an unfamiliar term for something that could not be more familiar to us: the way things seem to us', such as the perceived redness of an evening sky - it cannot be put into words. These compositions are an attempt to describe a space in the artist’s mind, a three dimensional region of emotion and feeling influenced by a fleeting yet intense period of saudade – an indescribable longing for something one never had.
bolus makes structured noise and soundscapes interspersed with percussion, found sounds and field recordings.
"I have varied interests ranging from film, art, mathematics and science through to field recording and sound collecting, which all influence my work in one way or another. I sometimes create music while picturing an imaginary scene from a film which ties in with my desire to make soundtracks and to create films of my own. I love modulating soundscapes and drones, as well as playing with monumental reverbs. "
bolus allows himself the creative freedom to take the sound in whatever direction interests him at that point without worrying about genre or previous style.
